Tools for Waging Peace: A Community Meditation for Ukraine

Zoom Video Call

About this event

As war rages in Ukraine, many are experiencing tremendous suffering – physical pain, despair, anger, and anxiety. Let’s come together in community and use our meditation practice to extend compassion— the relief of suffering — to all beings. Through this practice, we expand and deepen our connection with all sentient beings.

Lama Tsomo will share simple, practical advice on cultivating compassion. Together we will explore how these qualities of heart and mind can support us in our everyday efforts to wage peace.

This event is suitable for new and experienced practitioners. All are welcome.

Together we will:

– Take time to ground and bring awareness to the present moment.

– Explore the topic of cultivating compassion and peace in times of war.

– Meditate

– Have the opportunity to reflect and ask questions.

About Lama Tsomo

Lama Tsomo is a Tibetan Buddhist teacher and author. She is a founding board member of the Ewam Buddhist Center and is overseeing the planning and construction of the Namchak Montana Retreat Ranch, a gathering place for Tibetan Buddhist learning and study in western Montana, where she lives. Known for her warm, candid, and humorous style, Lama Tsomo teaches Tibetan Buddhist practice in the United States and abroad.

Motivated by a desire to help people find happiness in their lives, Lama Tsomo started her psychotherapy practice in Colorado and began a path of spiritual inquiry in Tibetan Buddhism.

Under the tutelage of Tulku Sangak Rinpoche, holder of the Namchak Lineage of Tibet, Lama Tsomo completed extensive study and spiritual retreat in the United States and Nepal. After a decade of practice, including the traditional Three Year Retreat, she learned to speak Tibetan fluently and was ordained in 2005 in Nepal as one of the few American lamas in Tibetan Buddhism. At that time, she was given the name Lama Tsomo (Lama Sangak Yeshe Tsomo).

Lama Tsomo is the author of Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?: A Westerner’s Introduction and Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Practice, which won the 2016 Independent Publisher Award.
